Calc.org Redesigns Website
Posted by Michael on 5 November 2006, 03:37 GMT

It has come to our attention that calc.org has redesigned their website. With the new design and content, calc.org now has greatly increased their relevance to the calculator community today. We applaud calc.org on this great, sensible redesign that has been expected for quite some time. Calc.org has been dormant for far too long!

I wonder who wants the the calc.org domain name. Ben said there's someone interested in it.

... That was really mean. Seriously. Calc.org was once a respected website, but that was horrible even for a joke.

What happened was this. Calc.org was shut down due to numerous server problems. It was handed over to Kingrst but the revival project slowed down. Kingrst decided he didn't want to continue on with the revival and handed it to Ben.

I believe Adam handed over the domain to Ben. It was set to expire in January 06 or 07, but Ben renewed it. The project was very active up until last year around spring. The forums were empty for the development. I guess people that were assigned scripting tasks weren't doing their job. Ben did get a little angry... but since dev.calc.org doesn't yield the forums anymore, I guess it's safe to assume that Calc.org is officially dead.

Acctualy guys, I am the one responsible for calc.org. Ben was one of our lead designers on the site. I too am good friends with Adam. Although I have not talked to him about calc.org in some time. I being a college student with a full time job with a web hosting company have very little time to work on the site. The same thing holds true for pretty much our entire site team (which Ben helped put togeather). I am very sad that calc.org has died like it has. I wish I had more time myself to work on the project. Although IF there is anyone out there who TRULY has time to work on the project and get it off the ground, by all means PLEASE email me at kingrst@gmail.com. I have a place we can host the site for free in deffinetly. It is true that "legaly" Adam owns the domain and still pays for it. I think it would be cool if we could suprise him at some point within this year or before the end of 2007 with a revival of calc.org.

Actually we made a lot of progress. Last time I remember the site design was complete and we had all the archives before Calc.org went offline.
However it came time for sewing threads, I really don't know what happened but I guess that everyone started to not really check back anymore.

Look out calc world...
I'm here!
I am creating a calc website that will surpass even the greatness of of calc.org!
Behold, TInfo!
It is not published (I cant get it published yet), but when it is, it will take over the first place spot here.
PS: watch out for my program I am making. Should be out soon.

Oh great...that was the most unsubtle plug I've seen in a while.
And why should we care? You gave absolutely NO information.

Well UnitedTI has the calc.org archives now anyway, they got permission from ben trettel to put all calc.org programs in their archives. THey said they would mention which programs are from calc.org and which ones are from UnitedTI

Wow, that was just today! It's good news that we haven't lost the whole archive to the new Super Soaker site. (It's more the principle of the thing to me, as I don't download many calculator games or programs anymore.)

He probably thought you weren't interested in it anymore.

Sorry all, but I am having A LOT of problems getting a way to put my page on the web.
Anyone care to help me put TInfo on the web?
(without using geocities or MSN groups or something like that. I want my own page with my own URL.)

I use freewebsites.com for all of my sites, then mask it with a second level domain, such as dot tk (free).

I kind of like 100WebSpace (see Web Page). For their free hosting plan, they offer:

* 1 Domain Hosted
* 100 MB Data Storage
* 3 GB Data Transfer
* PHP, Perl/CGI-BIN
* 5 Subdomains
* 1 MySQL Database
* 5 MB MySQL Space
* FTP Access
* POP3/IMAP E-mail (No SMTP)
* 24/7 Technical Support
* Small Banner Ad

The CGI is really cool, because you can write your own server-side scripts to generate pages, so you can have highly-customized guestbooks or other forms. I've used CGI to generate and return a fractal image as a GIF or PNG. I've also made a script (in Perl) that gives me a shell into my account through the Web too.

Alternatively, you could use No-IP.com or dyndns.com to get a free subdomain and host the site on your computer. I do this on my home computer (http://sammy.hopto.org:81/).

You can use either of these with a second level domain, as James mentioned, to have a shorter domain name.

Has anyone noticed that all the links go to sscentral.org, not inside of calc.org? It doesn't seem to be a joke, because none of the old pages (calc.org/programs calc.org/info etc) work anymore. Does anyone else have any ideas? This is to wierd to be true.

this is not fake, but the news was made in red because it was meant to be making fun of calc.org situation, hence the sarcasm. I recall doing this once with MaxCoderz on my website in a news, I had a poll asking how many accounts did you had on MC forums, because back then some people registered 2-3 times, if not more, and they freely signed up a new account when they didnt liked their old nick anymore instead of asking staff to change it -.-
i think it kinda got solved recently though
